Accessible City

Penticton cares about community and accessibility. We continue to take steps to improve access for people of all abilities throughout our public spaces.

Getting Around

Audible signal devices at crosswalks in downtown Penticton help those who have visual impairments know that it’s safe to cross. Newer intersections also feature a special plastic surface that helps those with white canes identify the edge of the road through sound.

Accessible parking options are available to those who have a vehicle with a valid permit on display.  

The City also works with BC Transit to offer accessible options for people to get around town. Learn more about public transit in Penticton and about accessibility on BC Transit South Okanagan-Similkameen buses.
